pink lemonade quilt top

You would think I would have run out of WIPs by now, but the battle between me and my WIP list continues. Hahaha!
This newly finished quilt top is made from all scraps, of course, in warm colors. I tend to gravitate toward cool colors more often, so this palette was a nice change of pace. It's nice and bright and cheery! I didn't notice it until I was taking photos, but there is an upper case "E" and a lower case "e" in this quilt. Do you see them? That was a total accident, but I kind of like it!
The quilt top is constructed very much like my scrap vortex quilts. (Tutorials from the QAL can be found on my quilt along page, at the very bottom.)
The quilt top measures about 45"x 59" or so. Once it is finished, I plan to donate it to A Mother's Hope program. (You can read more about that here.)

These cool blocks were pieced around the same time as the ones above, but I decided to separate them from the warm blocks. These will probably up as their own quilt. I'm mulling over a few ideas, but I'm excited about the possibilities!

I love the warm colors so much. I would love to make one, but I don't have hardly any solids. Maybe I could do it in prints if I am careful and try to keep with tone on tone?

Jenny said...

The warm colours are a winner with me too - so pretty!

Kate Chiconi said...

Also several Hs, a P, an S and a lower case i! Lovely quilt, it cannot fail to cheer up its new owner.

That would be 'e' for 'Excellent'. Such a cheerful quilt, clearly it will brighten someone's day.

Yummy! I may need to start a special container just for my solid scraps, I suspect my cool colors will build up faster.

Ariane said...

These both look great! I love your pink lemonade quilt top.

The "e-quilt" I love it!

Sarabeth said...

And I see a G, an I... it's like alphabet lemonade!
It's cool when unexpected things like that emerge in a design.

Tamie said...

Lovely. Makes me want to sew!

Bernie Kringel said...

Very pretty- after following you for a while, I began separating my solid scraps into a different bin and it is getting quite full. It will be fun to do something with just solids. Soon, very soon. 😊

I spotted the e's right away! Lovely.

So bright and cheery. Perfect for a brightening the mood on a dull gray day. Nicely done!

Vanni said...

Very beautiful! Once you got me searching for letters, I found several "E", "H" and "F" - but I guess that's plain normal in these kinds of quilts because our brain always searches for known patterns....

Kate said...

Very fun and bright. It will definitely cheer up someone's day.

I always love your scrappy inspiration and this one will certainly brighten up the recipient. I saw the upper case E right away. Great job!

Sarah Craig said...

Oh, I love the colors in this one! So so pretty. Thanks for brightening up my morning!!

I can't tell you how many scrap vortex quilts I've made from your tutorial. They are great to use up scraps and be creative without really having to think after a long day at work.

Susan said...

I'm so curious. Do you consider a work in progress something that has been CUT OUT but no sewing yet? Or does that never happen in your life? I tend not to consider things WIPs until I have done at least some sewing. But I still have quilts (too many) that I have cut out but done no sewing on...yet.

Perfect name! I love these colors together. Well done, once again. And so generous for you to share it with someone who needs cheering and kindness.
